Microstutter in 29.97fps files...

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Not sure if this is the first 29.97fps file I ripped without re-encoding or not but it's certainly the first time I've noticed it. I searched around and found people report similar issues but typically on playback with a certain device... and for their issues remuxing to another container fixed the issue. I'm having this issue on 3 different PCs with VLC, Plex and XBMC... the microstutter is nearly non-existant with XBMC though. I'm also getting small horizontal white lines during movement. Also barely noticeable. The white lines go away when I use the deinterlace filter. I'm guessing it's something small I'm overlooking. The files are from the Doctor Who Series 7 Blu-ray and they are around 30~35Mbps.... thoughts?

Correction.. bitrate is avg 38Mbps max 48Mbps.

It's AVC. Here is the output from the original m2ts file. I'm starting to think the stuttering is actually in the video itself. I re-encoded it to x264 and it's still there...

So I went back to my Sliders collection which is also 29.97 fps and it also has a microstutter.... so I'm either being overly sensitive to the stutter or I'm configuring something wrong for that frame rate. Any ideas? Has anyone else seen stuttering (that doesn't appear to be performance related) with 29.97 fps?

Every commonly available 29.97 fps video is interlaced. Your problem sounds like bad de-interlacing. A good de-interlaceer needs to detect film vs. video content and apply the correct algorithm when converting the 29.97 fps video to 60 fps progressive.

Changing the splitter sometimes fixes the problem. The current best splitter is LAV splitter (its video and audio decoders are also recommended).
